Kidzworld is calling all students to join us in an Hour of Code with Tynker!

Let's get inspired! 

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science now than 10 years ago. Good news is, we're on our way to change this. If you heard about Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. In one week, 15 million students - just like you, tried computer science! Computer science was on the homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. President Obama, Shakira and Ashton Kutcher all kicked off the Hour of Code with Video's. Over 100 partners came together to support this movement and this year Kidzworld going to be part of it!
